, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who

. >> we will have the live briefing with jay carney once it is underway. president obama will be meeting with iraq he prime minister alba lucky. they are expected to talk to security concerns in the country as terror and violence has flared, particularly since the u.s. forces pulled out nearly two years ago. their discussion is coming on a day with the associated press is reporting an intelligence official saying the leader of the pakistan taliban was one of three people killed, and -- in a suspected u.s. drone strike. we will have live coverage of the press briefing once again's underway here on c-span. we have a preview this morning " of theington journal meeting between president obama and the prime minister. host: and what you're excited to see out of it. iraqi the goal out of the perspective is to get u.s. help for the fight against a really terrorist-ike of driven violence inside iraq and the argument that the president thisime minister, rather, is a threat that affects not only iraq but it drives and iran. it has really become in the counterterrorism parliament a transnational thr
that the president never considered releasing him. the question was placed the jay carney yesterday. here is his response. [video clip] replacing hillary clinton for joe biden. >> it is important to know that campaigns and posters test a lot of things. what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that and, had anyone brought that idea to him, he would have left it out of the room. that former chief of staff bill daley said as much this morning. and here's why. joe biden has been an asset to this president into campaigns and throughout five years of this administration. whether it was handling the implementation of the recovery, handling the very sensitive and important portfolio of iraq in the first term or his key role in working with congress on some important negotiations, joe biden has been an excellent partner in the president's view. and then, as a candidate, i think, if you look at the role he played in 2012 when you look debate,ob he did in his i think there is little doubt that he was an enormous asset to the entire cause and enterprise. that is how the pre
rollout, we are learning that six people were able to sign up on day one. yesterday, jay carney said this is a dog bite man's story as we talk about health care but yet this is a big deal and we're learning more. is it accurate or wise i should say for the white house to downplay this as dog bite's man? >> i think they have to accept the fact this was a big screw up. i think new york mayor laguardia said when i make a mistake, it's a butte. this is something the president cares about more than anything in his legacy, the major contribution he has made to the social safety net. it will ultimately succeed, but it only succeed if he keeps his credibility. i think it's important as we go through this rocky period he is seen the man you go to. he always has to tell the whole truth. bobby kennedy used to say hang a lantern on your problem and let people know what your problem is so they will begin to trust you more. real quickly a yes or no. do you think the president needs to come out and talk more about this? >> no. i think he needs to be candid about the fact the issue is still this one
consideration? >> yes. >> david, white house spokesman jay carney asked yesterday if president obama knew about any potential v.p. swaps, listen to this -- >> you're saying he was aware of this or was not -- >> i think if you ask the people who were more directly running the campaign that question, they might have an answer. i'm not aware that he was aware of it. >> in those conversations about kicking biden off the ticket here, is it possible the president may not have been aware of those discussions happening around him? >> i think chris is right in what she said. i covered the campaign. there were moments where the president seemed to have losst some of the momentum he had four years ago. hillary clinton was riding high in the polls as secretary of state. there was public talk among pundits and so on. i'm sure the campaign were thinking about every potential option. whether it reached the level of president obama or was serious, it looks unlikely. david plouffe is adamant about that. i think this is a lot of talk. biden's role in this white house has been periodically questioned about how se
